Direct reductive coupling of indoles to nitrostyrenes en route to (indol-3-yl)acetamides

Author affiliations

Abstract

A highly efficient one-pot method for the reductive coupling of indoles to nitrostyrenes in polyphosphoric acid doped with PCl3 was developed. This method allows direct and expeditious access to primary (indol-3-yl)acetamides, interesting as anti-cancer drug candidates.
